A Knee Strike in Taegeuk Chil Jang. The arms are brought downward while the knee is brought upward

A Knee Strike (not to be confused with a Knee Break) is a strike in which the knee is thrust into the head or body or the opponent. The Knee Strike is used, for example, in Taegeuk Chil Jang. Typically the arms are used to control the head or body of the opponent, bringing the head or body forward and downward while the knee is brought upward to strike. The ankle of the striking leg should be straight (so that the foot is pointed downward).
